3 Winter Skin Care Tips To Follow
When winter sets in, the colder temperatures, blowing winds and reduced number of daylight hours can impact not only our overall mood, but also our complexion and skin health. Not taking care of our skin properly during the colder months can cause the skin to become dry, or worse, flaky and inflamed. This is highly uncomfortable for your skin, can cause pain and long-term issues, and aesthetically doesn’t look great.
Don’t fall prey to the colder months and take control of your skin regimen early on. This will make sure you have well-hydrated and plump skin throughout the season. JK7® is here to provide you with a few tips to keep your skin merry and bright during the festive season.
Choose a Hydrating Make-Up Remover and Cleanser
There is an overwhelming amount of make-up remover and cleanser products on the market. However, not all of them are necessarily suitable for you to use during the chillier months. Some of these cleansing products may further dry out your skin by stripping away your skin’s natural oils, leaving you with a dull and dehydrated complexion. It is therefore vital to find products that are ultra-hydrating and preferably natural without any synthetic ingredients that can irritate already sensitive skin.
To keep your skin looking luminous and smooth, choose products formulated with either chamomile or calendula. JK7®’s Eye and Face Make-Up Remover is a perfect choice to cleanse, moisturize, and balance your skin all at the same time. With an herbal blend of Hawaiian Kukui Nut, Jojoba Oil, Calendula, and Avocado, this remover also rids impurities and leaves you with a more stabilized and youthful skin texture. If you are looking for a deeper cleanse, we suggest to follow up the Make-Up Remover with our Foaming Face Wash. Massaging the self-processed organic herbal extracts into your face will remove dead skin cells, prevent dryness, and rebalance the pH level of your skin, resulting in a fresh, clear and smooth complexion. Using the right products for the first step of your skin care routine will create a moisturized and protective barrier for your skin.
Power Up Your Skin Care
One of the most commonly ignored skin care steps in winter is the switch to more concentrated hydrating products. Hydration is paramount when it comes to healthy skin – no matter what age or skin issues you have. Properly hydrated and moisturized skin helps your skin barrier function at its best against all the tough winter elements. Typically, we suggest you look for thicker face creams instead of lotions that are less resistant to drier conditions. Something like JK7®’s 24H Cream Day & Night Face Care, which combines natural extracts paired with antioxidants, is perfect to support your skin’s moisture retention.
Adding a face oil with organic essential oils to your moisturizer can also help replenish dehydrated skin because it provides essential fatty acids and seals in that precious moisture.
Take Care of Your Body
Now that you’ve got your face covered, don’t forget your body’s need for moisture and protection too! After all, the skin is the largest organ of our body. Central heating during colder months can have dehydrating effects on the body, meaning your skin needs to be kept well-hydrated before you wrap yourself up in warm, protective clothing.
A highly moisturizing lotion like JK7®’s Body Care Lotion will ensure your legs, arms, and torso stay nourished without irritation all winter long.
Looking for an extra high-quality, deeply moisturizing product to incorporate into your body care regime? Our Body Moisturizing Oil is a game-changer. The refreshing and natural body oil replenishes and enhances the elasticity of your skin. Remember, moisturizing your skin religiously is a habit that will pay off!
Extra JK7® Tip
Cold weather for many of us means curling up under a blanket and indulging in warm, delicious comfort foods. As much as you might be tempted to indulge in these high-calorie, high-fat foods, don’t neglect a well-balanced diet. Make sure you are consuming your daily dose of fruits and vegetables as they provide essential vitamins and minerals to keep your skin healthy and stay hydrated. This supports your organism by boosting your metabolism. In addition, make sure you keep up with your regular exercise routine as frequent movement supports your organism and skin to keep you energized, healthy and glowing naturally.
Here’s to healthy, hydrated, and happy skin throughout winter!
